Blogs and articles

Water sports stir all sorts of emotions within us. One Vendee Globe skipper told me that after a hard night keeping his boat in condition just to finish the race, he used to pour his heart out in his blogs and got quite a following even as a tail-ender on the race. Ultimately a water sports writer’s skill is being able to convey all the wonder, technical issues and sheer fun of our world both to those who participate and those who do not.

Good content has two effects – it tells search engines you are still current, but also brings people to your site time and again. Yes, it has to be key word optimised (a skill in its own right) but most important of all it has to be something people want to read. That’s why you come to me. Opinionated, well researched and knowledgeable content that will give the reader something to think about.

Web copy

Ultimately your business is being sold on your landing pages. Tell them who you are through compelling, SEO targeted web copy.

Case studies

Want others to tell your story for you? That’s no bad thing, particularly if it is good news!

As a journalist, interviews come second nature to me. With 12 years’ experience and postgraduate journalism training, I am good at getting people to say what they mean and how they feel about you and your business.
